Katanga Mine: an overview of Glencore’s KCC Mining in Congo, one of our mines in DRC
Glencore’s Katanga Mine is one of the group’s copper mines in Africa; it’s a major mining operator in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It operates through two companies, both joint ventures: Kamoto Copper Company (KCC) and DRC Copper and Cobalt Project (DCP). KCC runs the Kamoto project, which includes exploration and mining properties, the Kamoto concentrator, the Luilu metallurgical plant, the Kamoto underground mine and two oxide open pit mines in the Kolwezi district of the DRC. It has capacity to produce 300,000 tonnes of first-class copper cathode each year. The mine in Kolwezi is a high grade copper-cobalt asset that employs over 17,000 people. The area where it’s located is part of the African Copperbelt, one of the world’s most important copper producing regions. Glencore’s investments into mining in this region since 2009, via KCC Kolwezi, are helping to expand copper mining in Congo. This video gives an overview of operations at KCC Mining DRC, including brief interviews with Gustave Nzeng, KCC Chairman; Dodo Nduw, Operations Manager; and Dede Madika, Copper Electrolysis Plant.

Congo’s trucks (full documentary)
Five times bigger than France, third largest country in Africa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is, foremost, one of the world’s richest countries in raw materials. There’s cobalt, mainly used in mobile phones and the aeronautics industry, copper, zinc, gold and diamonds in astounding quantities. Our cameras focused on Katanga, a province in the south of the DRC, which has three quarters of the country’s wealth. We accompany Eugene, owner of a truck, laden to the top with goods, that must travel from Lubumbashi, the country’s economic capital, to his native city of Bukama, 400 miles to the north. The journey from Lubumbashi to Bukama takes four days. At the wheel is « the prince of the highway », answering to the name of Domingo, aided by three escorts: Elephant, Bijou and Maroquin. They cling onto the outside of the truck and are the driver’s eyes and ears throughout the journey. We accompanied them for the whole of the trip, a nightmare along almost totally unusable roads, an African remake of the « Wages of Fear » set against a background of organized looting of the country’s wealth by three principal countries: China, India and the USA.

FILM Publicitaire : EN CINQUANTE ANS -UNION MINIERE HAUT- KATANGA Archives, Populations Bantoues, Tutsis, UMHK.CONGO BELGA CDR, Production GERARD DE BOE ,Commentaires dit par Etienne Samson. Musique David van de Woestyne Enseignements, Hôpitaux, Mines, scouts, chorales, The Union Minière du Haut-Katanga ("Mining Union of Upper Katanga"), often abbreviated to UMHK, was a Belgian mining company, once operating in Katanga, in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, formerly the Congo Free State (1885–1908) and Belgian Congo (1908–1960). ユニオン・ミニエール社、正式名称ユニオン・ミニエール・デュ・オー・カタンガ(Union Minière du Haut Katanga)社は、かつて存在した鉱山会社。本社はベルギーにあった。ベルギー・イギリス合弁により設立され、非鉄金属、特に銅及びコバルトにおいて圧倒的なシェアを占めた。現在はユミコア社となっている。ベルギー領コンゴ(現在のコンゴ民主共和国)のカタンガ州の鉱業権を独占し、カタンガに巨大な企業帝国を築き上げ、「ベルギー領コンゴにはユニオン・ミニエールというもう一つの帝国がある」といわれた。 La Unión Minera del Alto Katanga (en francés: Union Minière du Haut Katanga, UMHK) fue una empresa minera belga, en su momento operando en Katanga, en lo que ahora es la República Democrática del Congo (anteriormente, Estado Libre del Congo; desde 1908, Congo Belga; desde 1972, Zaire). L’UMHK emploie un nombre croissant de travailleurs africains : 8 500 en 1919, 17 200 en 1929. Une telle expansion, dans une province peu peuplée, amène la compagnie à recruter massivement à l’extérieur du Katanga, en Rhodésie d’abord puis dans d’autres régions du Congo. Pour faciliter le recrutement et encourager ses ouvriers à signer des contrats de plus longue durée, la direction de l’Union minière met en place, dès 1926, une politique paternaliste. Le 1er janvier 1967, les avoirs de l'UMHK au Congo (y compris ses participations dans des sociétés établies au Congo) sont nationalisés. Ils sont transférés par le gouvernement congolais à une société nouvelle de droit congolais, la Gécomin (Générale congolaise des minerais), qui prendra par après le nom de Gécamines. Union Minière was de vroegere naam van Umicore, een Belgisch bedrijf. Aangezien het bedrijf in de praktijk niet meer zozeer een mijnbouwbedrijf was, maar veeleer gespecialiseerd was in non-ferrometalen, werd een nieuwe naam voorgesteld. De geschiedenis van Union Minière is nauw verbonden met de mijnontginningen in Congo-Kinshasa en het voormalige Belgisch-Congo

Shinkolobwe Uranium*Manhattan Project*Katanga Province*Democratic Republic of the Congo.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katanga_Province https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkolobwe Shinkolobwe is the name of a town and a mine in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), located near the larger town of Likasi and about 120 miles northwest of Lubumbashi. Around 15,000 people live in the town. The mine produced uranium ore for the Manhattan Project. It was officially closed in 2004. The mineral deposit was discovered in 1915 by Robert Rich Sharp (1881-1958). The mine was worked from 1921 onwards. Uranium-bearing ore was initially exported to Belgium for the extraction of radium. The United States used Shinkolobwe's uranium resources to supply the Manhattan Project to construct the atomic bomb in World War II. Edgar Sengier, then director of Union Minière du Haut Katanga, had stockpiled 1,200 tonnes of uranium ore in a warehouse on Staten Island, New York. This ore and an additional 3,000 tonnes of ore stored above-ground at the mine was purchased by Colonel Ken Nichols for use in the project. Nichols wrote: Our best source, the Shinkolobwe mine, represented a freak occurrence in nature. It contained a tremendously rich lode of uranium pitchblende. Nothing like it has ever again been found. The ore already in the United States contained 65 percent U3O8, while the pitchblende aboveground in the Congo amounted to a thousand tons of 65 percent ore, and the waste piles of ore contained two thousand tons of 20 percent U3O8. To illustrate the uniqueness of Sengier’s stockpile, after the war the MED and the AEC considered ore containing three-tenths of 1 percent as a good find. Without Sengier’s foresight in stockpiling ore in the United States and aboveground in Africa, we simply would not have had the amounts of uranium needed to justify building the large separation plants and the plutonium reactors. The mine was closed in 1939 and flooded. The US Army sent a squad from its Corps of Engineers to reopen the mine, expand the aerodromes in Léopoldville (now Kinshasa and Elizabethville (now Lubumbashi), and extend the port at Matadi, on the Congo River. Between 1942 and 1944, about 30,000 tons of uranium ore were sold to the US Army. On July 18, 2006 the DRC Sanctions Committee, (United Nations Security Council Committee Established Pursuant to Resolution 1533 (2004), to give it its full name) released a report dated June 15, 2006, which stated that artisanal mining for various minerals continues at the Shinkolobwe mine: 149. During an investigation into alleged smuggling of radioactive materials, the Group of Experts has learned that such incidents are far more frequent than assumed. According to Congolese experts on radioactive materials, organs of State security have, during the past six years, confiscated over 50 cases containing uranium or cesium in and around Kinshasa. The last significant incident occurred in March 2004 when two containers with over 100 kilograms of stable uranium-238 and uranium-235 were secured. American interest in the Shinkolobwe mine for the purpose of developing of nuclear weapons led to the implementation of extensive security measures. Shinkolobwe's location was removed from maps and journalists were denied access to the mine and official information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krishnaswamy_Sundarji In 1963 he served in the UN mission in the Congo, where he was chief of staff of the Katanga command and was mentioned in dispatches for his gallantry. It was about this time when India had tested its own Nuclear bomb. General Sundarji had long been an advocate of a nuclear policy, and now emerged as an articulate military spokesman for nuclear policy. In 1984, he led Operation Blue Star, intended to evict Sikh extremists who had occupied the Golden temple in Amritsar. The Indian army marched into the gurudawara with their boots off. He was to later say - "We went inside with humility in our hearts and prayers on our lips". According to his wife, Sundarji emerged a changed man after this operation. In 1986, he was appointed the Chief of Army Staff. After taking over as the Army Chief, he wrote a letter to his soldiers warning of deteriorating standards, and the evil of sycophancy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9D6coHoVaU On August 9, 2006 the Sunday Times published a report claiming that Iran was seeking to import "bomb-making uranium" from the Shinkolobwe mine., quoting the UN report of July 18, 2006. This report gives "Tanzanian customs officials" as its sole source for their claim that the uranium was destined for processing in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan via the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_Abbas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushehr https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushehr_Nuclear_Power_Plant https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W88

Katanga Mining Limited: how Glencore’s KCC mining has supported local entrepreneurs and development
Glencore mining company Katanga has made significant investments in its mines in Africa, as well as in local development and infrastructure, to support its host regions within the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since taking over the Katanga mine in 2008, Glencore has invested close to $5 billion in our Congo mining assets; this includes capital funding to address legacy issues that are helping to regenerate the entire DRC mining industry. We have also undertaken local initiatives that support entrepreneurs in cooperatives who stimulate economic growth for local communities, and that develop or rehabilitate local transport and infrastructure. Our support of local business and infrastructure is creating strong foundations for future sustainable growth in the region; we are contributing to tremendous socioeconomic change and development for local people. Our goal is to foster self-sufficiency and to motivate our host communities to take responsibility for their own future, without overdependence on the Katanga Mine or other Congo mining companies. This involves extensive engagement with different stakeholders through formal assessments and ongoing community consultation, to determine and prioritise their needs.

Your Smartphone Was Made By Child Slave Labor - Congo Cobalt Mines
Your Smartphone Is Powered by Child Labor at Cobalt Mines in Africa. Human rights watchdog Amnesty International has accused several tech and auto industry giants of turning a blind eye to child labor. In a damning report released on Tuesday, the organization found that major brands, including Apple, Samsung, Sony, and Volkswagen, were allowing cobalt mined by children into their products. Cobalt — a metallic element that is found mostly in minerals — is a key component in the lithium-ion rechargeable batteries that power electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones, and electric cars. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), in central Africa, is the world's top cobalt producer, accounting for more than half of the planet's supply. According to the DRC's government, 20 percent of the cobalt exported by country is extracted from mines in the southern province of Katanga. Much of the cobalt mined in the region is sold to Congo Dongfang Mining International (CDM), a company owned by Chinese mineral company Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt Company Ltd (Huayou Cobalt), which the Amnesty report describes as one of the world's leading manufacturers of cobalt products. According to Amnesty, the components produced by Huayou Cobalt are then sold on to battery manufacturers in China and South Korea, who, in turn, supply some of the world's top electronics companies. A 2014 report by children's rights agency UNICEF found that approximately 40,000 children worked in mines in southern DRC, and that many of them were involved in the mining of cobalt. 'There is lots of dust, it is very easy to catch colds, and we hurt all over.' Amnesty said its report was researched jointly with DRC-based NGO African Resources Watch (Afrewatch). The report is based on interviews of miners working at four sites in the DRC. As part of their investigation, researchers spoke to 17 children, ages 9 to 17. One child said he started working at the mine when he was 7. Most of the children interviewed by Amnesty worked above ground, collecting ore and sorting through rocks, which they then washed in streams and lakes around the mines. The children described working gruelling, 12-hour shifts in the extreme heat or in the rain, often for no more than 1,000 to 2,000 Congolese Francs ($1-$2) per day. Some of them explained that their school day was bookended with shifts at the mine, and that they also worked weekends and during the holidays. Paul, 14, told researchers he also worked underground in the mines, often spending up to 24 hours at a time in unsafe tunnels. "I arrived in the morning and would leave the following morning," he said. Researchers found that the vast majority of workers in the DRC's mines handle cobalt without wearing any protective gear, such as gloves or facemasks, despite the known dangers of chronic exposure to cobalt dust. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that extended exposure to cobalt dust can result in "respiratory sensitization, asthma, shortness of breath," as well as dermatitis and a serious condition known as "hard metal lung disease." Amnesty said the children they interviewed complained of frequent illness. "There is lots of dust, it is very easy to catch colds, and we hurt all over," Dany, a 15-year-old miner, told the watchdog. Amnesty also found that many of the underage miners were malnourished and subjected to "physical abuse, sexual exploitation and violence." Many of the children endured regular beatings at the hands of security guards, who also extorted them for a cut of their earnings. "They asked for money, but we didn't have any... They grabbed my friend and pushed her into a tank containing diesel oil," said Mathy, who told researchers she was 12 at the time of the incident. In a response published as an annex to the report, Apple said that underage labor was "never tolerated in our supply chain and we are proud to have led the industry in pioneering new safeguards." The company said that it was "actively looking for any violations." Microsoft said that it did not "tolerate the use of child, involuntary or forced labor" in its supply chain, but added that it was "unable to say with absolute assurance" whether cobalt in its products could be traced back to ore in the Katanga region. Samsung SDI noted that "up until now, there has been no case of child labor violations reported or detected from Samsung's SDI's plants or suppliers." But like Microsoft, the Korean company also said that it could not determine whether its cobalt supplies originated in Katanga.

Governor of Congo Mining Province Loses Party Post in Rift With President
Political sources said Moise Katumbi, the powerful governor of Democratic Republic of Congo's copper-producing Katanga province, has been removed as regional head of the ruling party, highlighting a deepening rift with President Joseph Kabila. But he made a speech in Katanga late last month that was seen as a thinly veiled attack on Kabila, who has been in power since 2001 and under Congo's constitution is required to step down in 2016 at the end of his second term. Couching his criticism in football references, Katumbi urged his supporters to challenge Kabila's right to score a "third penalty" against Congo, a vast mineral-rich country of around 70 million people blighted by conflicts and corruption. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/7mY3pIuNY24/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

The movie director personally went to Ruashi, Likasi and KIPUSHI in Katanga Province, the DR Congo where he collected the information that describes the different aspects of underdevelopment that rages this part of the country, including lack of water, electricity, schools, hospitals and most of children who are attending mining quarries instead of going to school. Despite the big profits those mining companies realize, nothing is consistently surrendered for the development of the area.

Congo peace: the real deal
KPFA Weekend News Anchor Cameron Jones: A peace treaty for the undeclared war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which was resumed last year by the Rwandan and Ugandan-backed and commanded M23 militia, is now scheduled to be signed on February 24th. However, some critics say that the peace treaty is really a roadmap for the division of mineral rich eastern Congo into separate countries, or even free trade zones, for the convenience of Western mining companies. KPFA's Ann Garrison spoke to Congolese mining researcher Jean Didier Lozango, one of the many Africa advocates who believe that the borders of the D.R.C. must remain intact, for the sake of both Congo and Africa. KPFA/Ann Garrison: Congolese mining researcher Jean Didier Losango is now based in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he is pursuing a doctoral degree in sustainable development, but he recently returned from doing research sponsored by the University of Berlin, in Katanga Province, the most mineral rich province in his homeland, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or D.R.C. Like many Congolese people, Losango speaks English, French, and African languages fluently. His English needs no translation, but because he has a strong French accent, and because the Congolese provinces he speaks of are distant and unfamiliar, I'm simply going to repeat his statements to KPFA about why the Democratic Republic of the Congo must resist being divided. Jean Didier Lozango: We don't want to get this country divided. Decentralization is good, but we are not ready for decentralization. Federalism is good, but we are not ready for that. So people still have to learn about all those things before. In the meantime, while we are learning about all that, we must keep the country united. If Katanga is one country, Kivu is one country, I'm telling you NO. And my question is 'why people want only those provinces like Katanga to be independent?' The DRC has 11 provinces, but why do people only focus on these provinces? Katanga, and North-South Kivu? And they forget about Equateur, Bandudu, and Kasai, which are also part of the DRC provinces. Because they have interests there. There are minerals there and they have to control them. So they are pushing this agenda to have this part of the DRC out of the DRC. (KPFA repeats.) Jean Didier Lozango: So why only Katanga? Because copper and cobalt are there. Why only North and South Kivu? Because coltan is there. Why only Orientale Province? Because gold is there. (KPFA repeats.) KPFA: And that was Jean Didier Losango, Congolese mining researcher, on the peace treaty for the Democratic Republic of the Congo scheduled to be signed on February 24th, which many critics and Africa advocates say is a roadmap for the division of eastern Congo into individual states for the convenience of Western mining companies.

Germain Katang was found not guilty of rape, sexual slavery and using child soldiers, a war crime under the Statute of Rome. The charges relate to the killing of several hundred civilians from the Hema ethnic group in 2003 during the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In 2003, militias from the Lendu ethnic group - to which Katanga belongs - and other allied tribes were alleged to have attacked the Hema village of Borogo in the Ituri district in the north-east of the country. The fighters are said to have killed, plundered and raped their way through the village, killing around 200 people.

AVEC LE VENT Comment les Congolais vivent avec les mines et l’investisseurs étrangers
"Avec le Vent" est le titre d’un documentaire tourné en avril 2013 en République démocratique du #Congo (#RDC) (Afrique), essentiellement dans la province minière du #Katanga. Il met en relief les progrès de l’industrie minière au regard du quotidien des Congolais. L’un ne va visiblement pas de pair avec l’autre. Des grands avantages ont été accordés aux investisseurs. Mais les effets négatifs de l’industrie ne sont pas maîtrisés et la population en souffre. Tandis que le cuivre et le cobalt sont extraits des mines pour nourrir l’économie mondialisée, les Congolais toussent. Une révision du cadre légal (le Code minier) est en cours et permettrait de pallier les défauts et dérives de la situation actuelle. Il faudrait pour cela que la loi soit plus restrictive et… qu’on touche aux intérêts des investisseurs tant sollicités. Un autre dossier sensible. Contexte En 2015 les politiques œuvrant pour le développement vont, pour ainsi dire, "changer de carrosserie". Elles adopteront une nouvelle liste d’objectifs. Les Objectifs du Millénaire pour le Développement seront remplacés par les Objectifs de Développement Durable. Quels seront ces ODD ? C’est le sujet de discussion "à haut niveau". Le documentaire Avec le Vent interroge les concepts clés de ce débat fondamental. Le film explore l’industrie minière du Congo, un environnement "riche" en conflits mais aussi en illusions que nous tentons de déconstruire. C’est que nous utilisons communément et sans trop réfléchir la notion de développement durable. Le Congo, et surtout son secteur minier en ébullition continue, nous montre que la notion a ses limites. Elle est trop étroite pour fonder un développement au profit de tous.

Congo Independence Crisis 1960 (Lumumba's Assassination)
Congolese independence in 1960 On June 30, 1960, Belgium negotiated post-colonial mining rights in declaring an independent Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Yet within days, soldiers of the Congolese army mutinied, demanding increased pay and the removal of white officers from their ranks. When Belgium intervened militarily, more soldiers rebelled. Lumumba supported by the Congolese, was viewed by Western business leaders as an obstacle to their continued investments in Congolese diamond mines. Then, dominated by Belgian business interests, the mineral-rich Katanga province under the leadership of Moïse Kapenda Tshombe seceded from the DRC with Belgian support. Congolese President Joseph Kasavubu and Prime Minister Lumumba asked and received a peacekeeping force from the United Nations (UN). The conflict also became the site of a dangerous Cold War “proxy” contest between western powers led by the United States and the Soviet Union

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) confirmed that rebel violence in the country's mineral-rich region has destroyed 600 homes over the past three months and displaced 400,000. The head of the UN peacekeeping mission in the country, Martin Kobler, raised concerns over the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Katanga, saying the huge province has been neglected in recent months. "It's a humanitarian catastrophe," Kobler said, referring to the situation in Katanga, where more than 600 homes in 11 villages have been destroyed since October last year. The UN Special Representative for the African country also urged armed groups to allow humanitarian aid to the victims in the region. "All armed groups must stop their activities and allow humanitarian access to the main victims of this tragedy, the civilian populations," Kobler said. A secessionist group, called Mai Mai Kata Katanga, reportedly perpetrated most of the attacks in the region. According to the OCHA, fighting between the government and rebels, including the M23 has displaced 2.9 million people in the whole country. On November 5, 2013, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) claimed "total victory" over the M23 after capturing the group's remaining hilltop positions north of the eastern city of Goma with the assistance of an UN-mandated African force. Congo has faced numerous problems over the past few decades such as grinding poverty and crumbling infrastructure.

Laurent Nkunda: Warlord or Liberator?
The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo has issued an international arrest warrant against General Laurent Nkunda for war crimes, and human rights monitors like Refugees International say that his troops have killed and raped civilians and pillaged their villages. He denies the charges. "I'm not a warlord ... I'm a liberator of the people," he said. "The central reason for the nearly six million dead in the Congo since 1996 is not ethnic strife but rather the scramble for Congo's enormous treasure trove of diamonds, gold, copper, cobalt, coltan, tin, timber and more," says Maurice Carney of Friends of the Congo. Carney is not alone. Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Wangari Maathai has assessed these misconceptions and said "these wars when you look at them, they are all about resources and who is going to control them." DRC harbors the richest, purest minerals in the world, many of them vital to the U.S. defense industry. There is not one person who is reading this who does not benefit by mineral extraction and exploitation in DRC. For example, Congo has from 64%-80% of the world's reserve of coltan. Oil may arguably be the non-renewable resource which is front and center in every American's mind, but coltan is found in cell phones, laptops, digital cameras, and video game consoles. Coltan is the engine behind our communications systems, and 1500 people a day are dying in this region while Americans profit from corporate greed, take Congolese resources, turn our backs, and power-up our cellphones. Make no mistake about it, there is a violent resource war happening in Congo and a great wall of silence has been erected around it. While foreign corporations and American consumers benefit, 1.5 million people are in IDP (internally displaced persons) camps in Kivu Province alone. The World Bank has estimated that a whopping 75% of Congo's copper and cobalt reserves were basically given away to multi-national corporations. Novelist John le Carré (The Mission Song) op-ed in the Boston Globe "Getting the Congo's Wealth to Its People" explains, "As the deals presently stand, the main profit Congo state will make is from taxing the operations and exports of the mining companies. For a minimal return, it has signed away millions -- if not billions -- of dollars' worth of copper and cobalt for 35 years."

Katumbi treated after being tear gassed by police
The leading opposition candidate in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Moise Katumbi was on Friday rushed to a hospital in Lubumbashi for treatment. This was after police had fired tear gas at him and his supporters outside the prosecutor's office where he was due for a hearing, his lawyer said. The former Governor of the mineral rich Katanga province recently announced his bid for the country's presidency hours after the country's Justice Minister had ordered the prosecutor general to invest… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2016/05/14/katumbi-treated-after-being-tear-gassed-by-police Africanews is a new pan-African media pioneering multilingual and independent news telling expertise in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Getting detained by the Congo National Police
Video taken from my D90 after being escorted out of a cobalt mine outside Kolwezi. We were stopped by the National Congolese Police (the guy in the beret) and a plain-clothes private security or secret policeman (the first in line). The guy in the yellow was with us. They did NOT like the camera. Also, apparently the cobalt here is way more pure than normal so we think this site could be owned by someone important - hence the presence of PNC and private/secret police.

Après Mobutu, roi du Zaïre et Congo River, le réalisateur belge Thierry Michel poursuit son exploration de l'Afrique centrale. Son nouveau documentaire intitulé Katanga Business, sorte de thriller politico-économique, prend pour décor cette province du sud-est de la République démocratique du Congo, l'une des plus riches régions du globe en ressources minières. Pourtant, la population du Katanga continue de vivre dans une pauvreté extrême, tandis que des multinationales se trouvent concurrencées par l'arrivée de la Chine et ses milliards de dollars. Sur fond de guerre économique, Katanga Business est une parabole sur la mondialisation.

Katanga case: Order on reparations, summary, 24 March 2017
Today, 24 March 2017, Trial Chamber II (“the Chamber”) of the International Criminal Court (ICC or “the Court”) issued an Order awarding individual and collective reparations to the victims of crimes committed by Germain Katanga on 24 February 2003 during an attack on the village of Bogoro, in the Ituri district of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The judges awarded 297 victims with a symbolic compensation of USD 250 per victim as well as collective reparations in the form of support for housing, support for income generating activities, education aid and psychological support. Because of Mr Katanga’s indigence, the Trust Fund for Victims was invited to consider using its resources for the reparations and to present an implementation plan by 27 June 2017. Mr Katanga was able to view the proceedings via video broadcast at Makala Prison in the DRC. To ensure that interested persons are well informed - in particular applicants for reparations and affected communities - outreach activities, including a viewing site, will be held today in Bunia, DRC and in other villages in coming days. The Legal Representative of Victims and the Defence may appeal the Order within 30 days if they so wish. On 7 March 2014, Mr Katanga was found guilty as an accessory on one count of a crime against humanity (murder) and four counts of war crimes (murder, attacking a civilian population, destruction of property and pillaging). On 23 May 2014, he was sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment. His sentence was later reduced and was completed on 18 January 2016.

L'OPRL au Katanga (juillet 1961)
Ces images filmées par Yves Leroy, ancien chef du pupitre des hautbois de l’OPRL (à l’époque « Orchestre de Liège »), ont été réalisées en juillet1961 au Katanga (aujourd’hui une province du Congo). L'OPRL y effectuait une tournée de 8 concerts, la première de son histoire depuis sa création en 1960. Si Leroy n’a probablement pas eu l’occasion d'effectuer des prises de vues des concerts, il nous montre les musiciens découvrant l’Afrique, leur émerveillement au contact de la population, leur découverte de la faune et de la flore. L’Orchestre est accompagné de son directeur musical, Fernand Quinet (le fondateur de la phalange) et de Suzanne Debruge-Jonlet (l’échevine de la Culture de Liège). Régulièrement filmés durant leurs déplacements, les musiciens font étapes dans diverses villes comme Élisabethville (l’actuelle Lubumbashi), capitale du Katanga, ou Kolwezi. En juillet 1961, le Katanga est depuis un an un état indépendant dirigé par Moïse Tshombé. Il entretient des liens économiques importants avec la Belgique. Afin de renforcer ces liens, les deux états décident de jumeler Élisabethville, capitale du Katanga, à la ville de Liège ! La cérémonie de jumelage est prévue en juillet 1961. Elle coïncide avec le 50e anniversaire de la fondation d’Élisabethville ! Ce qui implique d’importantes festivités dont l’organisation d’une grande Foire internationale. Joseph Kiwele, Ministre de l’Education nationale du gouvernement propose d’inviter l’Orchestre de Liège à ces célébrations. Il est un inconditionnel de cette phalange. Cet ancien organiste a séjourné à Liège dans les années 50 et suivi les cours d’orgue du Conservatoire de musique (il a peut-être été l’élève de Jeanne Demessieux). Durant son séjour à Liège, il entend régulièrement Fernand Quinet et ses musiciens en concerts et leur promet de les faire venir dans sa patrie le jour où il sera ministre. Pari tenu ! La tournée de l’OPRL est fixée du 13 au 26 juillet. Six concerts sont programmés à Élisabethville : cinq au Théâtre de la Ville (dont la façade apparaît dans les images d’Yves Leroy), le sixième dans l’immense stade Albert de la commune de Kenia. Deux autres concerts ont été donnés à Jadotville - l’actuelle Likasi, ville à quelques 150 km à l’Est d’Élisabethville - et à Kolwezi, à 200 km à l’Est de Jadotville. L’Union Minière du Haut Katanga prend en charge une partie de cette tournée. Le ministre Kiwele souhaite que les concerts soient vivants, enjoués et rythmés. Quinet met au programme de la tournée l’Apprenti sorcier de Dukas, Shéhérazade de Rimski-Korsakov, l’ouverture du Carnaval romain de Berlioz, la Danse macabre de Saint-Saëns, les « Danses » du Prince Igor de Borodine, les 7e et 8e de Beethoven, l’Ouverture des Maîtres chanteurs de Nuremberg de Wagner et un arrangement du Boléro. Quelques œuvres de Grétry, Franck et Jongen illustrent le répertoire belge. Enfin, pour son plaisir personnel, Quinet intègre la Petite Suite de son ami Lutoslawski, la Rapsodie espagnole de Ravel et le Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune de Debussy. Régulièrement dirigée par Quinet, la pièce de Debussy fit l’objet d’une captation amateur. Cette version, réalisée entre 1960 et 1964 à la Salle Philharmonique de Liège et conservée dans les archives de Renée Bartélemy-Vogels (la belle-fille de Quinet), sert de bande-son au film d’Yves Leroy.
